With the 2023 Cricket World Cup around the horizon, many expected the host nation, India to be rampant in the home series against Australia.
India could somehow struggle their way to victory in the first of the 3 ODIs in Mumbai. But in the second game, played at Vizag, the men in blue were blasted away by the Kangaroos.
India were bowled out for a mere 117 runs in their innings with disastrous batting show from all batsmen. Australia ended up scoring these runs inside 11 overs, thus humiliating team India.
Ahead of the forthcoming worldcup, a terrible performance like this one here has dampened the mood of Indian cricket team followers. If this is the testament of what’s to come, then the World Cup dream should come to a halt prematurely.
